Those who start arranging their homes usually have numerous ideas. In addition to the interior style, selection of furniture and accessories – one aspect in particular is often underestimated: the lighting. At the same time, houses, apartments and offices pose far more options for lighting design than the individual ceiling outlets would suggest. Helen Neumann, lighting expert at Occhio, reveals how to harmonize interior decor with lighting design.
Let natural light be a guide
These lights provide the basic lighting
Dare to welcome in darkness
For a successful, holistic concept, it is advisable to include the experience and expertise of a lighting consultant, for example, with an Occhio retailer.
With these lights you create light accents
Using light to enhance the atmosphere
Compared to other conventional luminaires, LEDs can save up to 85% of energy, since they hardly develop any heat. They enable a new, slender luminaire design. Just as is the case with light bulbs, LEDs can also create a warm light. A light color of 2700 Kelvin corresponds to a warmly lit atmosphere. The only valid lighting reference for Occhio is the sun itself. The measuring unit is the color rendering index (CRI); natural sunlight has a CRI of 100. The light quality of our LEDs comes extremely close to this ideal with a CRI of 97: Colors appear with as much nuance and depth as they do in nature. The color temperature is also referred to as »light color« and is measured in Kelvin. The lower the Kelvin value, the warmer the light appears, the higher the value, the colder the light is perceived.
